NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Milk Jug Glow Skulls @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #halloween
Want a translucent, colorful, brightly glowing skull, but all you can find at the store is the usual opaque plastic skull? Not to fear! This new guide will show you how!
You can harness the power of heat to melt and form a common HDPE (high-density polyethelene) milk jug into a great light-diffusing Milk Jug Glow Skull! It’s incredibly satisfying to melt the jug onto the skull.
You can then light the Glow Skull from within using a strip of NeoPixels. The HalloWing, programmed with CircuitPython will provide flickering animation to the pixels, and a couple of 10mm LEDs and holders serve as menacing, blinking eyes! A small speaker is used to play growls and yells.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
